New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver’s The Broken Window —featuring beloved detective Lincoln Rhyme—is now available on audio for only $14.99.

When Lincoln’s cousin is arrested on murder charges, the case against Arthur Rhyme is perfect—too perfect. Forensic evidence from Arthur’s home is found all over the scene of the crime, and it looks like the fate of Lincoln’s estranged cousin is sealed. At the request of Arthur’s wife Judy, Lincoln begrudgingly agrees to investigate the case. Soon Lincoln and Amelia uncover a string of similar murders and rapes with perpetrators claiming innocence and ignorance—despite ironclad evidence at the scenes of the crime. Rhyme’s team realizes this “perfect” evidence may actually be the result of masterful identity theft and manipulation. An information service company seems to have all of the answers but is reluctant to share its information. Still, Rhyme and Sachs and their assembled team begin putting together a chilling pattern and consistent trace evidence, and their investigation points to one master criminal, whom they dub “522.” And when “522” learns the identities of the crime fighting team, the hunters become the hunted. Filled with Deaver’s trademark suspenseful plot twists, The Broken Window puts the partnership of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs to the ultimate test.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the most unnerving of Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme novels...[with a] mad genius who is smarter and scarier than the genre’s garden-variety nut jobs.”

    New York Times

  • “Rhyme still intrigues in his eighth outing, while Deaver’s scarily believable depiction of identity theft in a total-surveillance society stokes our paranoia.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Entertaining...the topical subject matter makes the story line particularly compelling.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Narrator Dennis Boutsikaris gives a subtle performance as understated as it is convincing. Boutsikaris knows exactly how to bring a character to life and how to captivate listeners with Deaver’s surprising plot twists. The strong-minded yet vulnerable protagonists demonstrate Boutsikaris’ ability to craft original, sympathetic characters. A thrilling ride is sure to excite listeners from start to finish.”


  • “Deaver has built his reputation on the strength of well-drawn characters; hyperrealistic dialogue (you don’t read it, you hear it); and right-angle plot twists that are impossible to predict. There is no one quite like Deaver—or like Lincoln Rhyme.”


  • “Dennis Boutsikaris’ reading of Deaver’s latest Lincoln Rhyme thriller is positively chilling...[His] reading is excellent, but he really ratchets the intensity when performing the passages told from the killer’s point of view. His delivery fully embraces the cold, calculating mind of the murderer, imbuing his seemingly dispassionate thoughts with an underlying sense of barely controlled rage and menace.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A 2009 International Thriller Writers Award Nominee for Best Novel

    " This installment in a reliable series was quite a bit better than the last two or three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lisa Wightman | 1/16/2014

    " Big Brother Is Watching You.... This latest Rhyme novel deals with the electronic trail of data that we all unwittingly leave behind us in every thing that we do. I personally am not one for worrying about such things, but this book did make you step back and think "wow". One keyboard press either deliberately or accidentally could potentially change your life, and in the wrong hands end it. A damn good read. "
